I just installed a new Toto Drake two-piece elongated toilet using the directions provided in a posting on this forum (excellent instructions, by the way). Anyway, there is a consistent seep around the bolt that holds the tank to the bowl on the left side. It drips a few drops per day. I have taken the tank off and lightly sanded the area inside the tank where the gasket for this bolt contacts the tank and reassembled. I tightened both bolts enough to get the three points of contact that Toto specifies, but I don't want to risk tightening so tight that I crack or break something. The seep and drips are still there. Any thoughts how I can stop the leak in this area? Otherwise, I am extremely pleased with the toilet.
